obama on "meet the press." the notion that this was sloppiness, is that what it was? >> i don't think so at all. what troubles me is the mindset of the president that it reveals that the death of four americans is just something that with a few minor alterations you can clean up. that's what sloppiness employs that things are basically okay but a few mistakes were made by unnamed individuals. the fact is that the ideology of the administration, the world view they have is that things in libya were going fine, we were moving toward a normal status in that country and thrfort repeated requests by embassy tripoli for enhanced security were denied. and we still don't know, not from the state department's internal review panel. not from the reports that congress issues. why it was that the state department continually rejected these requests for more assistance that led to the tragedy on 9/11. it's a very disturbing statement by the president that reveals a lot more troubling aspects of the way our people overseas are being protected. rick: some good leads is how the president described the i

[laughter] >> i can tell you that the first lady to send off and call or e-mail reporters. that i know for sure. she is a policy of not participating in books and that is a blanket policy, which is sad for all of us who are writing them. during the process i met with members of her staff to kind of update them as i went along. before the book came out i gave copies to her staff and she has also seen the books. what she thinks i don't know. >> well c
minutes past the hour now. >>> you want to see "meet the press" tomorrow. david gregory sitting down exclusively with president obama talking about this fiscal cliff. it will be the president's second appearance on the program as commander in chief. you need to check your local listings. >>> want to turn now to a developing story. crews are searching for survivors of a deadly plane crash in russia. the passenger plane skidded off the runway during a landing at moscow airported to. aircraft broke into pieces, burst into flames. the plane was carrying between 8 and 12 crew members. local reports saying at least four people were killed in that. again a developing story we are keeping an eye on. >>> also another developing story here is weather. a new winter storm system is dumping snow in the northeast. most of the snow is piling up in pennsylvania and new york as we speak. but parts of new england could see the worst of this storm. the weather channel meteorologist mike seidel. he is live for us alongside the pennsylvania turnpike in new cumberland. ways going to ask you what's it like
on it because i thought that press conference was baffling. very strange thing. it's put me in the other worldly and uncomfortable position of thinking that joe biden is the grownup in the white house. you got a sense from obama he is the sab tier in his own -- saboteur in his own white house. when he said how the republicans have agreed to raising taxes, that was in effect rhetorical poison pill to house republicans. the house republicans want to do is tomorrow when the taxes go all up, that the bush tax cut expire they say that they are voting to cut taxes. they are spinning this to raise taxes. i don't think the republicans should allow themselves to be baited by obama. >> bret: the or thing is talk about the sequester. you will remember of course in debate, in october. the president said this. about the sequester. >> first of all, is sequester is not something that i propose. something that congress is proposed. he will not happen. >> bret: part of the solution for the super committee. that was part of the deal. negotiating now is delay it by a couple of months. which potentially negotiate o
. appreciate it. peter: thanks. stuart: president obama vows to make gun control a major issue in the new year. here's the president on meet the press yesterday. >> i've been very clear that, you know, an assault rifle ban, you know, banning these high capacity clips, background checks, there are a set of issues that i have historically supported and will continue to support. >> can you get it done? >> so the question is, are we going to be able to have a national conversation and move something through congress? i'd like to get it done in the first year. stuart: all right. he'd like to get it done in the first year. do you think that stricter gun control laws are indeed coming? david: i think he's going to push for it. the president has often said about assault weapons, he said you don't need an assault weapon to kill a deer. the 2nd amendment wasn't about killing deers. it was about offending ourselves as best as we can from oppressive government. that's what it was about. if the president can handle that and he can't because everybody who is for banning guns cannot handle that simple easy p
as news warrants. >>> we want to go to the white house where president obama is keeping a eye on capitol hill. the president making his case and pressing lawmakers to reach a deal. when asked about the fiscal cliff in an interview today. ed henry is live from the white house. the president seemed to be aggressively pushing his message. >> he was. he's been briefed through the day by his staff. he's been at the white house behind closed doors, awaiting the latest. all those developments mike's talking about but he decided also to take an aggressive role in going on a sunday talk show for the first time in over three years, meet the press, and made his case by suggesting this is in republican hands now. if they do not move forward on a deal, the g.o.p. will get the blame for going off the cliff. >> one of the proposals we made was chain cpi which sounds technical but makes an adjustment in terms of how inflation a calculated on social security. high will highly unpopular among democrats but in pursuit of strengthening social security long term i'm willing to make those decisions. >> the pr
the press" says that president obama is going to appear on the show this weekend. we heard from the president a little bit ago. he still wants to get a deal done and he talks about the affects of the tax increases. we're going to bring you his comments in just a little bit. we're going to head to washington where bob is on the line. >> my comment is, i think the president is wrong. he wants to tax the people who actually provide the jobs for the country. and it is always tax us now and spending cuts later and i don't think the spending cuts are ever going to happen. if they do, it will only be for a short period of a couple of times before the base line budgeting will eat up the cuts. it is always tax, tax, and spend. this country can't afford that anymore. we can't pay what we o'now. >> willard is on the line from san diego, california. let's try one more time for willard. moving on to monica, she's in florida on the republicans line. >> yes, i was listening to the president speak about the budget. i notice he did not talk about the $250,000 being taxed. i think he's going to d
in 2013 for those names. liz: thank you so much. president obama landing in washington just moments ago. cutting his vacation in hawaii sure to tackle the fiscal cliff. reports calling the possibility of a deal before the new year "virtually impossible." let's bring in former press secretary to al gore and we also have brad blakeman. they are both joining us from washington, d.c. "the house has already passed legislation to avoid the fiscal cliff, but senate democrats have not." what do you make of that feedback they are having what amounts to a staring contest right now. it is legislation that would keep tax cuts for those making under $250,000 a year. the house does not have any plans to come back before january 1. liz: the house does have a bill that would not hurt small businesses and the job creators in this country. for some reason they seem to be avoiding that very important issue for the u.s. economy. >> what i make of it is, it all goes back to the leadership of the president. the president created this crisis. remember, he was the one who had a bipartisan commission on the deb
